Mathieu Abrard Explores the Karakoram
There is something about the biggest mountains on earth that attracts Ozone pilots. Ozone has a long history with the Himalaya, and especially with the Karakoram, a range which contains the world’s highest concentration of 8000m peaks. Mathieu Abrard is there currently, flying his M4 deep into the heart of Pakistan’s Karakoram. He writes of his adventure:
“I am now in Pakistan with my M4 and I love it! I fly the small size, over the top [of the weight range] with the o2 equipment and all of my bivouac staff and it’s still flying well, which is great 😉 Here are some photos which I hope you like. They were all taken above 6000m in the K2 region, this is an amazing place with 3 summits over 8000m (K2, Gasherbrum, and Leila) and so many glaciers… I still have 2 more weeks, and I will try to go for a 200km and maybe push the Mantra at 7000m. I send you small size pictures because of my connection. All the best from Pakistan!!”
Nice work Mathieu, enjoy your time there and cheers from all the Team!
